    Cherry & Koa Box

    Well, the annual box show is coming up so I finally had the last year's boxes photographed. Here is the first one.

    Description:
    This box is all made from an ornamental Cherry tree that was rescued from a neighbors yard.. The top panel and trim is a highly figured Koa. Being a type of Cherry, the box will darken with age and sunlight. The dimensions are approx. 6"x4"x3.5" tall. The box was finished with shellac applied with a French polish technique on the outside and the whole thing buffed out with Caranuba wax. Hinges are made by Brusso and are self stopping at 90. This box is incredibly beautiful as the top shimmers with a golden hue when moved in the light. The liner is a synthetic suede material.
    $125

    Beautiful. I see the gravel reflected in that killer finish.

    That is knock-out gorgeous. I love how you are beveling the lid. BTW: did you laminate the outside of the lid frame or is it the light? The finish is superb.

    Way to go Rick!

    I think, therefore I'm more confused than when I began.

    Thanks. It is a solid panel. With it being so small, I am not worried about wood movement.
